Our October book will be in celebration of the International Day of the Girl Child. Girls living in poverty, immigrant and refugee girls, experience many challenges in the fulfillment of their human rights.
Join us this month as we read Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok. “Kimberly Chang, the heroine of Jean Kwok's debut novel, exchanges Hong Kong for New York in the early 1980's. While Kimberly's mother earns two cents an hour in a sweatshop, her 11-year-old daughter faces the challenge of school: neither speaks English. Kimberly also has the even more difficult business of hiding her extreme poverty from her new friends.” – The Independent.
